Early Times Report
Jammu, Apr 24: The J&K Health and Medical Education has got a setback as an in-charge principal of the newly launched Government Medical College Doda has refused to hold the post.
Moreover, after refusing to continue as principal of the college, the parental department has not made efforts to find his replacement to streamline the functioning of the college and get a 'no objection certificate' from the Medical Council of India (MCI).
Pertinently, the state government had appointed five principals for upcoming medical colleges in the state, and five applications forms were submitted to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India before the deadline, i.e., July 7, 2018, in a hurry to make them functional.
The department had appointed Dr Ghansham Dev Gupta, Professor, Radiodiagnosis, GMC Jammu as Incharge Principal, GMC Doda, but he refused to join, citing personal reasons.
Thereafter, on July 5, 2018, government issued another order appointing Dr Ashutosh Gupta, Professor Radiotherapy, GMC Jammu, but he too refused to join the new assignment. Later, Dr Tariq Azad was appointed as principal of the college.
"Instead of appointing permanent principal, now another doctor, who is in-charge principal of a medical college, has also written to the concerned department that he would not continue as principal of the Doda medical college," said sources.
If sources are to be believed, the doctor has written that till his replacement is not found, he will continue but will not leaving the existing post and department.
Sources also added that if the things will not sort out as soon as possible, the college has to face the axe of MCI, and the dream of the area to have a medical college will not be fulfilled.
"The fate of the Doda medical college is hanging in balance as the college will take more time to fulfil the requirements of the MCI. A number of deficiencies exist in the college and if inspection of the college is done, its future would be in danger, "sources stated, adding that the Health department should take immediate steps to save the college from MCI's action.
Principal Secretary Health, Atal Dulloo, was not available for comments.
